This question may be naive but I am new to the house moving as a 1st time buyer of a ground floor flat in Formby. Do I collect the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Formby?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the completion advance to the vendor’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to pick up the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.

I happen to be the only recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Formby. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in November. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in November. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be caught by that. Most lenders would take a pragmatic view as this provision primarily exists to identify subsales or the flipping of properties.

I recently had an offer accepted on an apartment in Formby. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their lawyer. I paid an upfront payment of £225. A couple of days later, the property lawyer contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Kent Reliance panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
